What's Next: Starbuck's At Lenin's Tomb?

Well, vis-a-vis the whole "not feeling dirty" issue, I don't know that seraching for an obscure news story on The Drudge Report makes me feel any cleaner, but here it is anyway.

It seems that the Vladimir Putin government has demolished historic buildings at the Kremlin in order to make way for a luxury hotel there. It scarcely needs to be said that the Kremlin is a UNESCO World Heritage site, and that these demolitions were conducted without permits. Hm. Poisoning his opponents, demolishing world heritage for capitalist greed...

Maybe Putin's the one who phoned in that death threat against Knut at the Berlin Zoo, then iced Yeltsin.
